The Fokker 70, with 85 people onboard, landed at Arlanda airport as emergency vehicles stood by. The airliner was on its way from Vienna to Stockholm when a warning system showed a problem. The pilot made a pass over the airport so ground controllers could verify that the landing gear was extended, and the aircraft was cleared to land.
Another Stockholm-bound flight, operated by the budget carrier FlyMe, was forced to return to Malmö’s Sturup airport Tuesday, after colliding with a flock of geese during take-off. One of the plane’s engines malfunctioned after the collision, but the plane landed safely. None of the 98 passengers was injured.
